DELICIOUS COFFEE WITH A GREAT CAUSE
My name is Javier Amador-Pena and I live in Brookline and have been here for 10 years, my son is a third grader at Lincoln School. I have a personal relationship with coffee farmers in Colombia, South America. I’m importing green beans directly from those farmers and roasting them in Hopedale, MA. I sell roasted coffee here in Brookline to a variety of clients. I’m interested in selling directly to Brookline residents who are interested in great coffee while supporting a good cause. 5% of the profit goes directly to supporting the coffee growers whom I deal with. If this is something that interests you, feel free to check my website (elcolombianocoffee.com) and/or contact me directly at elcolombianocoffee@gmail.com.

BE THE PARENT YOU WANT TO BE! 
Do you ever feel frustrated with your child? Find yourself shouting often and imposing punishments or rewards in reaction to challenging behavior? Do you wish you had a more effective parenting approach that also helps to build a better relationship between you and your child? The Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, based in MGH’s Department of Psychiatry, provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and parent their kids (ages 3-18) in the face of day-to-day challenges – e.g., getting to school, homework, bedtime, screen time – and more serious challenges. CPS helps parents to:

– Foster positive relationships with their child
– Reduce their child’s challenging behavior
– Build their child’s self-regulation, communication and problem-solving skills
– Solve problems collaboratively and proactively
